Went as a group last night, after having been several times (with good experiences) in the past and was very disappointed this time around. The food took forever to arrive, and although I enjoyed my food several people in the party were disappointed with theirs- the vegetarian pasta was described as bland. The blonde waitress didn't crack a smile the... More

Went in last week to see and sample the new menu. Very good bigger selection and more choices. However they dropped my favourite dish, chicken with pepper sauce, and replaced with chicken in lemon sauce with mashed potatoes. Not a favourite. I had wild mushroom risotto. Lovely but a bit rich. Plenty of mushrooms, and very tasty but cut back... More

Visit left bank in numerous occasions and it's been very good however my last couple of visits the food and service has been average rather than good which is disappointing as this is usually a good establishment!

Four of us went for lunch on Friday 6th June, what a good decision. Although you are not able to book a table (for lunch) we were lucky as a table had just been vacated. The lunch menu was very good, two of us chose the Steak Sandwhich and the others an Italian dish. All of us had a superb... More

We have eaten at this restaurant many times and always had great food coupled with a busy, warm atmosphere. Lovely to celebrate in a group or for a quiet meal for 2. It also is great value for money. Would definitely recommend.

Very busy & VERY noisy downstairs so went upstairs where we could hear ourselves speak. Salad & pasta was very good & excellent value for money. The waitress was pleasant and attentive so all in all a good time was had.

Sadly have to agree with the 2nd to previous review regarding the quality of the food being served here, Its a lot less appealing to other local restaurants. This place used to be up there with the best but the quality of the food is not good, and the way the meals are cooked is not good. Also agree that... More
